As great as it is to thank your community, we also like to give back to those who take their time to vote and participate in our survey. As a result, the 2018 prizes include a grand prize of $2000 and many Toppy T-shirts! The voters are chosen by a random ballot survey conducted by an unbiased third party endorsement. The winners are announced and contacted at the end of the surveying year. Contact information is gained through the surveying process, which asks the voter to leave behind their name and email address.
